Visitors to the new TomTom headquarters in Belgrade, Serbia, are greeted by a tram themed meeting room, inspired by the historic infrastructure of the city.

The new office is situated in the green heart centre, a relatively new area of the city that was redeveloped in 2018 and aims to function as a green oasis within Belgrade, whilst providing high-tech spaces embedded in an eco-friendly environment. This is just one example of the many quality developments which are springing up around the city.

TomTom briefed Peldon Rose, to manage the relocation, design and build process. Bringing to life the personality and culture of TomTom, as well as reflecting the city of Belgrade, was a key objective.

The central wing of the new workspace incorporates the historic transport network within Belgrade, whilst referencing TomTom’s own focus on location technology.

The office in Belgrade was influenced by the brutalist architecture of the city. These elements were then brought together with the TomTom branding, to ensure it fits the other offices around the world.”

Peldon Rose’s approach helped support TomTom’s transition to an activity-based workspace, providing their employees with smart and agile ways of working. Peldon Rose designers also spent time with the TomTom team to really get under the skin of the business and to ensure the new office space would be truly tailored to the way the team works.

A move to an activity-based workplace also meant that many spaces were able to be multi-functional.

Sustainability also played a key role, with the design incorporating LEED accreditation to the fit out.  The finished result includes elements such as using high water efficient bathrooms and tapware, as well as materials that have a high percentage of recycled content throughout. This has created a space filled with curated design pieces that also is incredibly eco-efficient.

It was not only vital to implement the design, but also creating vibrant agile working spaces.  Due to the long working relationship we have built, we knew Peldon Rose are reliable to translate all the important elements into a working design and bring fantastic end results to the table. My favourite part of the project is the central part of the floor, which is a multipurpose lively area combined with collaborative and social working spaces”
